Reports of Colin Kaepernick’s Raiders Workout Surface

Colin Kaepernick may be one step closer to returning to the NFL.

The controversial 34-year-old veteran quarterback hasn’t played football in several years, but that hasn’t stopped the Raiders from giving him a look. Colin Kaepernick worked out for the team this week.

Kaepernick’s workout reportedly went well and he impressed the Raiders.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:

“On Colin Kaepernick’s workout with the Raiders: Sounds like it went well and he impressed,” Rapoport tweeted. “The door is open.”

“The fact that the Raiders are gonna have him workout today tells you that there has to be some level of interest in signing him,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday on NFL Live. “That this is not just some cursory look at a free-agent quarterback. Nobody else has been willing to do what the Raiders are doing today.”

“No one knows exactly the shape he’s in, nobody knows exactly how he would handle the offense, so the Raiders are gonna bring him in, take a look, [and] see what he’s about,” he added.

The Raiders are in need of a backup, but I’m guessing this Kaepernick thing is just a publicity stunt.

But we’ll see how this plays out.
